WRC - A mysterious, maybe even mythical creature roams the woods not far from the nation's capital.

Workers at a Maryland hospital first spotted the shy guy, or gal, in June, when they were forced to take their smoke breaks outside.

It soon became a subject of lore and legend, and was dubbed "prince chupa", after the mythical "chupacabra."

Last week, an x-ray tech caught the creature in a cage, and on camera.

But even a closer look couldn't solve the burning question: just what is it?

"It's a kangaroo, dog, rat mixed. It's got a rat tail and a head like a deer. i don't know what it is," said Joe Livermore, an x-ray technician.

Livermore let the animal go, and workers are contacting local veterinarians for help identifying it.
